As it is known, Corona Virus Disease affects all countries in a global sense and has been declared as an outbreak (pandemic) by the World Health Organization. An outbreak that has had such a global impact on human history has not been experienced before. On the other hand, as it affects all areas of life now, it stands before us as an undoubted fact that some aspects of it will be permanent and have deep effects in the future. We can see that the countries are currently in many economic-based preparations especially in the field of health. In this aspect, we know that the things that are needed to be done are being planned. In particular, preparations are continuing for supply-demand balances, producer-consumer behavior, methods of doing business and organizing, working models, education-teaching methods and materials, and continuing everyday life more meaningfully. Of course, different aspects of this widespread new situation will be discussed and besides these preparations along with the outbreak the emergence of new situations in the fields of law, literature, art, media, education, technology, security, religion, politics, economy, family, etc. is also inevitable. In this context, as an editorial team, we decided to go for a special issue call, both in order to understand the current situation and make the state, society, and institutions more prepared against possible outbreaks in the future.
This call, is open to all fields of social and humanities, while studies completing the evaluation processes, will be put at the disposal of our country and the scientific community as a special issue. While evaluating the COVID-19 outbreak in the context of our country and globally, outbreaks in history and outbreaks encountered in recent years will be within the scope of our special issue. In addition to its national and global benefits, this issue also aims to publish studies in a specific and addressed environment and aims to make the academic studies get more citations so it will be easier for those who will work in this field. As a matter of fact, these works published in dozens of different addresses can sometimes be overlooked.
For this, the call start date is April 23 and the last article submission date is announced as August 23, 2020. We are planning July 01 as the most likely publication date of the issue. If the works continue, a special issue is designed in September and December 2020. You can add your studies on coronavirus (COVID-19) and other outbreaks to the system at www.turkishstudies.net
